A work of beauty that's also fully functional.
It seems like the more fashionable gloves are the less function they serve on the ski slopes; not the Astis Pocahontas Mitten. It might display a soft suede exterior with hand-sewn beadwork and real fur trims that look right at home in après-settings, but the silicon-injected waterproofing ensures reliable protection when you're skiing under heavy snowfall. Polartec Thermal Pro High Loft insulation bolsters warmth for even more defense against winter's freezing cold, and it manages moisture if you're getting sweaty palms cruising down hills.
- Hand-sewn mittens suitable for skiing and après-skiing

Received the mittens with a big surprise, actually not only myself, but the ladies in my office.
I love the design, the craftsmanship, the color combination and the fit. My most gorgeous gloves ever. Wish to see the matching beanie / shawl on the market soon.
BTW, the photo here is a little bit off - no blue tint.
Best gloves ever!

I have never received more compliments. Someone on the lift said I looked like I had super powers with those gloves on! Ha! They are extremely well made and waterproof. You don't need a glove liner. The only downside is the sizing. I wear these to snowboard and I use wrist guards, which the small slides over perfectly. I have small hands and the smallest size is a small, however, without the guards, they would be too loose to snowboard in. Astis should make an x-small.
